myclimate is entrusting Christof Fuchs with the development of the organisation in Austria. A native of Vienna, he can look back on 30 years of experience in various leading management, marketing and sales positions. Until 2020, he was responsible for realising a successful import strategy and the market launch of electric vehicles for several brands in Austria as Managing Partner of FHVG GmbH. Previously, Christof Fuchs worked as Head of Marketing & Sales at MIA Feinkost GmbH for two years, where he focused on the reorientation of sales in particular.
It was as General Manager and Managing Director with responsibility under trade and industry law that Christof Fuchs built up zipcar, the first nationwide car sharing system in Austria. During his seven-year period in office, he initiated the partnership with Austrian Federal Railways (ÖBB) and Wiener Linien, the company largely responsible for public transport in Vienna, as an effective last-mile solution. Christof Fuchs took his first professional steps in advertising, before heading up marketing and promotional events at Casinos Austria for 13 years.
Christof Fuchs studied business management at Vienna University of Economics and Business and also has an MBA from the University of Applied Sciences Kufstein in automotive management. He lives with his family in Vienna, from where he will be in charge of the development of myclimate in Austria.
“We are not Progressing Quickly Enough”
Christof Fuchs underlines the challenges involved in his task: “We are not progressing quickly enough when it comes to climate protection. Every company in Austria needs to rethink how it does business, now and in the future. Global warming is one of the biggest threats for our society; there are dramatic consequences looming if we fail to act. With the help of the proven myclimate solutions, I want to support companies in working towards a joint goal of becoming climate-neutral businesses.
Stephen Neff, myclimate CEO, comments: “Christof Fuchs impressed us with his extensive professional background in various managerial positions and his broad network. His expertise in the field of mobility and his associated interest in sustainable change inspired us. He is a competent and creative partner for effective corporate climate protection for companies in Austria. I am looking forward immensely to working with him.”
